An explosion and fire at a nightclub has left dozens of people dead and many more wounded in the Romanian capital of Bucharest late Friday.
Multiple outlets report the explosion happened during a rock concert at the Colectiv nightclub; there's speculation fireworks were involved in the blast and resulting fire. An estimated 300-400 people were in the club at the time.
"From what we know so far there was only one exit, so obviously everybody rushed and tried to get out. A lot of people with severe burns or intoxicated by the smoke, a lot of people scared," local reporter Paul Angelescu told CNN.
